I can't believe that anyone was surprised that the cats wouldn't cooperate.


Cat intelligence and cognition: Are cats smarter than dogs?

Cats, like any other lone predator species, don't respond to social incentives.

If they really want to study cat intelligence, they have to offer something better than approval. Real hunger would motive well enough.

They are completely free of minor concerns. Total lack of vanity, hubris, givashit and vice. Never whine when sick or injured, they just endure. They don't live to serve and please us and they really have no concern at all about what we think of them.

In fact they see us as just another cat, albeit a big one.

Highly intelligent and with memory that surprises most - they remember everything starting from a very young age.

Endure without whining? It's obvious that you've never met Simon.
